12 Standards for School Counseling Page 12 Conceptual Framework Standards Conceptual Framework and Assessment The conceptual framework for school counseling and school psychology outlines specific competencies based on our national accreditation bodies. CWU school counseling candidates value and have demonstrable skills in nine identified content areas. These are derived from the National Model and the content domains recommended by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP): Contextual Dimensions: Candidates must possess the knowledge of strategies and the skills that promote, develop, and enhance effective teamwork within the school and the larger community. Knowledge and Skills for the Practice of School Counseling: o Guidance Curriculum Candidates can present instruction through K-12 classroom and group activities. o Individual Student Planning Candidates can coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students individually in establishing personal goals and developing future plans. o Responsive and Preventive Services Candidates run activities that meet individual students immediate needs through counseling, consultation, referral, peer helping or information. They will also create preventive services to potential problems at their campuses (Brown, 2006). Research and Evaluation: We expect CWU school counselor candidates will not only become knowledgeable about the design and delivery of comprehensive, developmental school counseling programs, but they will also develop the research and evaluation skills necessary to design and implement outcome evaluation studies. Human Growth and Development: School counselors will be able to create ageappropriate interventions for children, adolescents, and adults according to their physical, emotional, and intellectual needs. Social and Cultural Foundations: School counselors are aware of diversity issues in all groups and successfully identify the ways in which cultural factors change group dynamics. The school counselor has the skills and knowledge to adapt an intervention to meet the needs of diverse students. Counseling Relationships: Successful candidates will demonstrate successful interventions for individuals, groups, and families. Lifespan Career Development: Successful candidates will demonstrate appropriate ways to identify student interests, abilities, and motivation for career development. Appraisal: Candidates will demonstrate the appropriate interview, testing, diagnosis, and treatment plan skills.
